I still don't know why people wanted a 5 and 5. Would've been horrible. Only buys one of his UFA years and not a very cap friendly hit.

This is exactly the deal I wanted and even less a cap hit than I thought. In 2 years we'll have way more wiggle room, the cap should also be higher by then plus PK actually gets a chance to prove that he can go up to that next level before he gets paid like it. I'm not saying he hasn't been fantastic but he still hasn't reached his ceiling.

He saw first hand how the Blackhawks lose so many good players because of the cap. Looks like he's learned his lesson. Great job by Bergevin.
